German poet of the romantic period whose poems were known for being sensitive and powerful. He was influenced by the ancient Greeks, whom he regarded as basically romantic and not as restrained as the classicists. His friends published his poems in a volume entitled "Samtliche Werke" in 1846. Holderlin also authored "The Death of Empedocles," and "Hyperion."

He became mentally ill in 1802 and remained so until his death on 6/07/1843.
